Finding the End
Every new skein starts with the same regret of trying find that pesky end that's burried somewhere in the middle of my new pretty skein. I carefully open up end making it wide enough to try to see where the center part might actually be. I reach in... feel around... and grab a wad of yarn and pull it out. There's always more yarn that emerges than I'd like to see. Dauntily I unwind the clump, wind it back up into it's own center-pull ball and then stuff the ball back into the opened up wound of the original skein.

Come on gals, tell me there's a way to find that end that's less painful! Tips on which end to look in maybe.
